Personal protective equipment (PPE) has become an important part of our lives during the COVID-19 pandemic, with items such as face masks and goggles providing a defense against particles that may cause infection for both medical workers and members of the public.
To ensure the quality and reliability of PPE products, there are strict standards in place around the world. It is crucial that businesses producing and selling PPE are aware of, and comply with, the standards and testing requirements for these items. If they do not meet these standards, a business may face high fines or even be blacklisted from selling in their destination market.
This webinar will provide an overview of the various types of PPE products including face masks, goggles, gowns and gloves, and discuss the testing requirements that are in place to ensure the safety of your PPE products.
